Rating: Mid-range    

Hacienda Cusin overview

Hacienda Cusin was built at the beginning of the 17th century and has recently been converted to a country house inn offering a range of guest accommodation.

The hacienda is set in some 7 acres of lush gardens complete with hundreds of trees, patios, fountains, many species of orchids and over 50 species of birds, which guests are welcome to explore using the sefl-guided tour book and map available from reception. The hacienda offers a variety of activities including hiking, climbing, mountain biking and horse riding. It is also possible to visit local villages and, of course, the famous Otavalo market, which is about a 20 minute drive away.

Guests are accommodated in rooms, suites and garden cottages, all with ensuite bathroom, garden and mountain views. The hacienda has a dining room complete with fireplace, bar, library with books and DVDs, garden reading room, games room with billiards, darts and table tennis and a squash court.

The dining room is open for breakfast - a wonderful meal including fresh fruits, juices, homemade bread and jam, lunch and dinner. Enjoy an atmospheric candle-lit dinner by the log fire. Barbecues are sometimes arranged in the gardens for delicious al fresco dining.


Open: All year.

Location: Hacienda Cusin is near the village of San Pablo del Lago, about 15 minutes from the market town of Otavalo.

Rooms: The guest rooms are individually decorated and are furnished and feature locally-made textiles, handicrafts and antiques.

Mr Antony Caston

"Fairy-tail place! Warm fire burning a night meant it was hard to leave some of the public areas at night, but knowing that housekeping had turned on the heating and added hot-water bottles to the bed made easier to leave. Chatting to the owners over breakfast made you realise why they bought it too. "

Karen Griffiths
"Beautiful buildings and grounds and we had an enormous bedroom with a sitting area and fireplace in which, as dusk fell, a log fire was lit. After an excellent dinner we returned to find hot-water bottles in our bed"
"What a place! A holiday in itself just to be there. Mad Englishman (different one) restores old Hacienda superbly, fills it with artefacts and Spanish/South American furniture, and creates amazing garden and grounds. Logs fires and hot water bottles. Humming bird at window box of bathroom on 1st morning!"
Beth and Allan
